Come up for the weekend for two fun-filled days and one night at camp! If your child is entering 1st, 2nd, 3rd, or 4th grade and is not yet ready for camp, we'd like to invite your prospective camper to share in an action-packed weekend at Camp Timber Tops! Girls will have the chance to participate in exciting camp activities with other prospective campers while camp is in session, the whole time being supervised by our excellent staff. While children are enjoying Explorer Camp, parents can tour Timber Tops and meet with the directors.

Weekend activities include athletics, swimming, arts & crafts, outdoor adventure and more!
